the modernization of our forces with these disproportionate cuts that are coming to our national defense. tim and his allies up in washington are saying we do not want these cuts from defense as the house did or did something similar to that. what they want to do is raise taxes. it will not create any jobs. we in virginia have over 200,000 defense and technology jobs. rather than cutting back, we need to make sure we have a strong economy, a strong military. as far as our spending, i disagree with the president giving money -- if they cannot protect our embassies, they should not be getting our money. do not buy a friends. >> isn't there is 60-second rebuttal? >> no, there is not. >> island that on the first one. >> i thought i did, too. >> if we were both under the impression. >> virginia seniors who rely on social security benefits are in for a lifetime of work. almost 1 million virginians receiving social security check every month. they are very polite, receiving on average about 77% of their total monthly income from this alone. an aging society will put strain on the program into the fu

of defense and the national security council. prior to becoming chairman, he served briefly as the army's 37th chief of staff. general dempsey is a bit of an unexpected appointment. he had just been sworn in as the army chief of staff a couple of months prior, but when the nomination process for another candidate stalled, general dempsey was called to serve a grateful nation, and he has done so with distinction. since taking the chairman's job a year ago, the 37-year army veteran has made headlines by dealing with the infamous quran-burning pastor by calling him up and asking him to withdraw his support for the anti-muslim video that sparked protests across the middle east. he expressed disappointment over the navy seal who published an unauthorized account of the killing of osama bin laden. he said an israeli attack on iran would clearly delay but probably not destroy iran's nuclear program. he has stressed the need to retool the military for a postwar world with smaller pentagon budgets, and most recently he has spoken about the need to turn up the volume on ways to help war veterans reint
and that is why it takes you two or three years to really feel comfortable with defense that you play in the nfl to slow the game down a little bit. and robert will keep on learning. but we've got somebody very special. we've got a guy that competes, a guy that tries to make plays and every game he goes in, just like that last play in the red zone, when do you take a dive. when do you throw the ball away. that is all part of the learning experience he will gain as time goes on. >> step out of bounds. >> griffin tweeted to fans. he said he thinks after all the testing he will play next week but as we all know, the doctors get the final word on who plays the following week. >> they want to be really careful with him, of course. >> definitely. >>> we still have plenty ahead. your weather, traffic and all your top stories. >> fox 5 morning news continues right now. right now. >>> good morning. straight up 5:00. you probably felt a little chill in your house. you had to get out an extra blanket or pull out the flannel pajamas like wisdom did. >> i'm starting a fire when i get home. >> i'm sarah simm

. >> rick: major defense budget cuts are set to automatically kick in at the end of the year and time is running out for congress to stop it from happening and it could trigger job losses as well. why is this white house advising defense contractors to ignore a law requiring them to send layoff notices to their employees? chief congressional correspondent, mike emanuel live in washington with that. >> reporter: many involved in national security hope congress and the president will work out a deal after the election to avoid these cuts which defense secretary panetta said would be devastating but a law called the warren act, if you expect a mass layoff of employees you need to give them 60 days notice and one contractor co-says the uncertainty is rough. ? the frustration, we say what should we tell our people and it is akin to being in a car and, all of a sudden you find you are playing chicken and have your company in there and they are saying to you, if we go over the cliff we'll help you out, providing you don't tell the folks that they are in the car with us. >> reporter: the obam
, and with the cats' offense unable to get a first down early in the game, their defense was on the field almost constantly... in the end, i think penn state just wore 'em down and wore 'em out... coach fitz's team was 6-0 coming in, best start in half a century... fell behind early but rallied behind quarterback trevor simien-- squeezed it in there to tony jones, 14-10 cats at halftime... and still leading by four when this happened-- the punt to northwestern's most dangerous weapon, venrick mark-- and when he got the corner penn state was in big trouble-- venrick mark out-runs everybody, 75 yards, 28-17, the cats in control... but penn state was constantly converting on third and fourth downs to keep drives alive and finally, when matt mcgloin scored on the keeper with four and a half to go, the lions had the lead, 32-28... and they win it, 39-28.... northwestern's unbeaten season is out the window.... the irish hosting miami at soldier field... he had 3 drops like this... all notre dame ever since... 27-3 lead... waning moments... hits the corner... couldn 34-341-3 final >> illini coach t

defensive on foreign policy, joe biden showed once again, he has the experience and had the information. and details matter. and joe biden provided those, too. >> you saw the romney campaign zeroing in on the smiles and laughs from joe biden. >> yeah, and look, it's an interesting bar for success. democrats feel because he restored what obama lost last week, got them back to equilibrium. that it was a success. but that doesn't represent any threat to the momentum that romney was able to create from last week's debate. from the romney side, they felt they got their campaign in a good place last week. and paul ryan didn't do anything to jeopardize that momentum, that forward motion that they were able to put in place in those swing states. >> the bottom line, how does this set the table for the presidential debate tuesday night? >> last week, mitt romney tried to pivot to the middle. joe biden pushed them right back to the far right where they've been all campaign season. next week, president obama has to keep mitt romney back in that extreme position. and once again, tell the american pe

stations. yesterday the transit agency put up the ads which are paid for by the american freedom defense initiative. they compare muslim extremists to savages. metro resisted displaying those posters because it was concerned they could trigger a violent backlash. a judge ruled the ads must go up or metro would violate the aidi's first amendment rights. >> i will not sacrifice my freedom of speech. it's a ridiculous premise and utterly unamerican. >> the atmosphere ads are also in new york city subway stations. >>> another death is linked to the meningitis outbreak. the centers for disease control says at least 105 people have been sickened by the rare fungal infection. the death toll stands at nine. two of those were in maryland and virginia. health officials link the outbreak to steroid shots used for back pain. the cdc expects the number of people to continue to rise. >> the incubation is rather long, up to a month, so we expect new cases to be discovered around the country for the next several weeks, i'm afraid. >> symptoms include fever, severe headache, stiff neck, nausea and the in
. the american defense initiative created the ads, and metro didn't want to post them based on the violent response to the anti-islam video made in the u.s. a judge ruled on friday that metro was violating the afdi's first amendment rights. the ads have been posted in new york city subway stations since last month. >>> five minutes after the hour, and the nationals playoff run off to a great start. they won the opening game of the national league division series, and the game's big hero started the game on the bench. >> and a line drive to right field. coming on in, it's a base hit. beltran throwing on in, but two runs score. and moving on the throw to the plate is tyler moore. >> tyler moore's pinch-hit in the eighth inning scored the tying and winning runs, and the nats beat the world series champion st. louis cardinals 3-2. moore admits he was a little nervous when he was at bat. >> i'm coming off the bench in front of 50,000 people, so it's crazy. i've been in that position before, and i was able to calm myself down and just kind of put the barrel on it. >> you did good. the nationals
years as undersecretary of defense for policy. michelle, good to see you. the new ad that is out now, you know, everybody has on the job training here. we know that president obama, when he first came into office didn't have a lot of foreign policy experiences. can you cut mitt romney some slack on that first visit, or do you think that really indicates a lack of understand ogt world stage? >> well, his initial performance abroad certainly did not inspire confidence. the truth is beyond that he hasn't been able to articulate a clear vision as to where he would take this country. he talks a lot about criticizing the president, criticizing his policies, but when you actually look at what he says, there's -- he seems to either embrace the president's plan or where he differentiates himself, really goes way, way from the mainstream and takes us into some pretty uncertain territory. i think that the thing that makes people uncomfortable about him as a potential commander in chief is this sense of a lack of compass. where exactly would he lead. he doesn't seem to know that. >> the only dif
, he needs to seem engaged. he needs to answer those hard questions without being defensive and so, they both have challenges going in, but it should ab really great debate. >> clayton: it's interesting if you look back as a historian, 2008 and beyond. vice-president biden, then candidate biden crushed hillary clinton and barack obama in the debates. he was the one winning the debates. >> he's a very strong debater. i'm sure that that's the biden that will show up this week, but part of the problem that a president and a vice-president faces is that they can be insulated very easily. they speak to crowds that adore them. >> right. >> they aren't orphanage challenged with tough questions from reporters as we've seen lately and i think that's a big challenge for biden this time around. >> historically the vice-president debates, i think, vealyielded a lot more entertaining moment and some think they'll stand out more. >> lloyd benson and dan quayle, 2002008. >> jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. (cheer (cheers) >> that was a fierce moment. >> that wa
force academy so from time to time the media will focus on it. the de the department of defense will wring the hands and say, oh, yes, we have a problem, but then when the media stops paying attention, nothing has been done. no structural reforks, and it is the structure and the way in which they have people report that is the problem. they allow the chain of command, and now that sounds like a hierarchy and sounds like that is a lot of people, but what you are actually talking about is empowering one human being, one individual to unilaterally shut down the investigation and prosecution of rape. because of that structure, there is a series underprosecution. you know, only a fraction and less than 10% ever get prosecuted an convicted, and of that, far less are actually convicted of rape and they reduce the charges to things like adultery. >> and susan, we did reach out to the department of defense and we were told that secretary panetta has repeatedly stated that there is no place for sexual assault at the military tor department of defense, and sexual assault is an affront to b
and defenders coming up with new defenses. the defenses do evolve rapidly but the attackers, they see the defenses that are out there and defenders problem they have to protect everything and attackers only find one thing. so the bad guys do have the initiative and have it pretty consistently. tracy: last time you were here, you told ashley we were in the middle of a full-blown cyber war, right? if that is the case our government should be protecting us from the cyber war. this is only time i think there should be government intervention. how come the government hasn't come down to help the smaller banks? i get it. they can't afford to protect themselves. >> yeah i think we have to be a little circumspect about what the government can do. once again because these attacks are taking advantage of the very nature of the internet and how web servers work and how internet traffic works it becomes very difficult to say that, you know, can the government shut these things down? well this traffic looks completely legitimate until you see what's deep inside of it. it actually gets to a point w
is shameless self-promoter. >> are you getting defensive? >> you seem defensive. >> that's the next point. career killer. >> this is a problem, too be more diplomatic don't get defensive. >> that makes perfect sense. i predict you might do the third one, mike. making a rash decision. >> yeah. many times things will come out of my mouth but here is the problem. i know it's an inappropriate thing to say but it comes out anyway. that is a rash decision. >> making rash decisions. >> it's always better. there is some reasons happened in my family life. i don't know what it was. i know that if i reacted immediately to it then it would have been bad. i waited like a day and i think i called my parents. i don't know what it was. it ended up being better that i waited. >> that's maturity. >> i know. in my 20's i wouldn't have done that. >> the next one i think is important. do i think this is even better than being a self-promoter the mistake you make is not being assertive. you should be aer assertive. you should speak up for what you want the squeaky wheel gets the worm. i may be mixing them up.
and that has put the obama team on the defensive, very big on the defensive. so this media narrative has changed and the media narrative has very big power in helping people process what's going , see who's up, see who's down and understand who has the real momentum in the race and that can make a difference come election day. >>reporter: what about the vice presidential debate that's going to take place tonight, how significant is that going to be? >>reporter: well, it may -- >> it may be bigger this time, in part because joe biden has to sort of recover some ground that was perceived to have been lost by the president in the first debate. in essence, joe biden has to take his argument to paul ryan and say you guys aren't moderates, you're more conservative than you say, now defend your record, we don't have to defend ours. and i think they're going to try to turn the tables in this debate, but paul ryan is not just going to be sitting there passively because he knows what happened to the president the last time. so he's going to push back and put all the resnsibility on this administ
